I've learned about the extraordinary benefits of turmeric after losing someone very close to me.

The health advantages are widely studied and I believe most people could benefit from taking it daily. Please be sure to do your own research based on your health profile. There are contraindications for those who have had their gallbladder removed, diabetes, etc...Please check the following site for contraindications.

Why did I started making my own turmeric capsules? Well, it's expensive to buy! And so I made capsules for myself. Then I started giving them out to friends and family. In fact, I don't believe that anyone should be "priced out" of having access to simple supplements to benefit their health.

Donate what you feel is fair, including postage, and I'll send you organic turmeric capsules with black pepper (which is included for better absorbability).

Each capsule is 750mg.

Generally speaking, children should take 1 capsule a day (750mg), adults 2 (1.5 grams) and large adults 3 (2.25 grams). 

For reference,

  • The average intake of turmeric in the diet in India is about 2-2.5 g by a 60 kg individual, and this corresponds to an intake of about 60-100 mg of curcumin per person per day (Chainani-Wu, 2003).
  • Another author estimates that the average intake of turmeric by Asians ranges from 0.5 to 1.5 g/person/day (Chattopadhyay et al., 2004). 

The Food and Drug Administration in the US requires supplements to pass a GRAS test (Generally Recognised as Safe)...which includes establishing toxic doses. And it's well established that humans can safely consume 8 grams of it daily without problems. 

  • Epstein et al., (2010) suggested that oral doses up to 12 g/d are well tolerated in human subjects based on the study by Lao et al., (2006). 
  • Chattopadhyay et al., (2004) pointed out that the average intake of turmeric by Asians varies from 0.5 to 1.5 g/person/day without report of adverse effects. This reviewer cites human trials to also indicate that curcumin has no apparent toxicity when administered at doses of 1–8 g/day (Chainani-Wu, 2003) and 10 g/day (Aggarwal et al., 2003). 
  • Sharma et al., (2005) cites a phase I human trial with 25 subjects using up to 8000 mg of curcumin per day for 3 months noting the absence of toxicity from curcumin (Cheng et al., 2001), and five other human trials using 1125 – 2500 mg of curcumin per day have also found it to be safe (Deodhar et al., 1980; Satoskar et al., 1986; James, 1994; Lal et al., 1999; Lal et al., 2000).

Hopefully those studies give you some peace of mind about the dosages of turmeric.

If you're happy with the arrangement, share my page with anyone who may benefit.
